(The Little Train of the North)

After a quarter-of-a-century hiatus, Canada's only regularly scheduled recreational train last year resumed weekend excursions linking Montreal with most of the Laurentian Mountain resorts. The 65-mile journey starts in Montreal's historic Windsor Station, where for $8 round-trip passengers can climb up into the dome car for its spectacular view. Many, however, buy a $5 ticket and hop off along the way to ski, cross-country or downhill, or wander through the curious mixture of French, English and American culture found in Quebec's small towns. The Canadian government has been operating the line as an experiment and will decide this spring whether to prolong it.
